I try to flip around and get various opinions on things. The far left media is just disingenuous as hell and people in the middle and right see it. The far left just doesn't seem to acknowledge this. They are too busy moral preening and virtual signaling to be able to see themselves with any clarity.
I'm talking about posters here, though, not the media.

I have some liberal friends, one refers to herself as a progressive, but she knows nothing about any of the issues in today's world because she says she doesn't watch or read news since it's so depressing.

Another informed voter complaining about everything and educated about nothing.

As a minority I hereby grant you permission to speak on the subject, whitey.

Yeah, you're right.

I see a lot of deflection with the hardcore Team Blue members asking cons why they hate Hollywood then turn around and comment on this story.

I mean...it's absurd. You can't be a rational human being and defend it so you have to use deflection. It's just as bad (arguably) as Team Red members complaining about the "decaying of society" in the other thread though. Grant it, that's not over a specific incident or individual but it's still laughable. They've been running that game since Pike's Peak was a pimple.

What a load of virtue signaling BS. Give up all she has to rid herself of her self loathing.

I miss the days when 'stupid' was clearly recognizable and saying so didn't involve politics, but common sense.

What she said was damn stupid.

Loving this....LMAO

When my very dear friend told me about "white privilege" i laughed and we got into one of our "discussions". When I was in college I worked my ass off and they were having a party time and were "brothers". I became successful because I used my smarts and my hands to forge a life. Guess they didn't

To f'n bad.
